I knew of the book (first edition) for years before I appreciated 
it.  Before I looked at the book in detail, I thought of only in terms of 
sequences like factorials, Bell numbers, Stirling numbers, etc, where they 
are generated (usually easily) by some formula.  When I realized that a 
sequence could be the solutions to a problem, or integers with a certain 
property, that greatly expanded what could be covered by sequences.
